Re: Zimbabwe Cricket pay off US$3m loan, significantly reduce debt from $27m to $1m

If they were able to, they could have paid the debt with $Z which were pegged to the$US originally but are now worth little.

Cheers, that is something. He was a win for science and a win for the conversation.

Re: Corona

Either we are speaking past one another or you are missing the forest for the trees. The claim wasn't about 'confidence' or infallibility. You said scientists never claim to be 100 percent correct. That word never is easy to falsify. A history of paradigm shifts provides supporting evidence along wi...

Re: Corona

Kriterion, I would think your claim was stronger if it said, "scientists ought never".

And I haven't heard any do it in relation to covid so we don't need to argue about that.

Re: Corona

I thought you were shifting goalposts. You said no scientist would claim to be 100% correct. I didn't think you meant infallible which you now seem to be saying. I think you meant 100% correct on a point of fact. The Semmelweis example was exactly a case of the powerful believing themselves to be Co...

Re: Corona

Sure, Bob, Jennifer, Phil, I have heard lots of people say bombastic things in one breath and then your doctrinally correct line the next. You've never heard it? That surprises me. People make all sorts of claims arguing from authority. It is in the logic textbooks as a fallacy for a reason. Speaki...

Re: Corona

How would they claim it? Easy, people say all sorts of unguarded things. Why would you doubt my testimony when you obviously have only heard a small fraction of scientists speak? You've then just given me more dogma, which is fine as far as it goes, but people being people they are capable of all so...

Re: Corona

I take your point Kriterion, but Scientists have very often claimed to be 100% correct. They often also make the claim you just made - "Scientists never claim to be 100% correct." Science is done in the present. When they stray into history or futurism they tend to end up storytelling. And that is w...
